The scene at the Midtown Target at 8:15am
After months of hype, The Webster's Target collection finally hit stores on Sunday. After the crazy scene that broke out over the Jason Wu for Target collection in February, how would Miami shoppers react to a homegrown collection? We hit the Target at Midtown to see for ourselves.

We arrived a little before 8:30 a.m. in hopes that we'd dodge all of the crazed collectors and fashionistas (we didn't want to have to fight for clothing) at the Midtown location. We succeeded.

We've broken down the good, the bad, and the ill-fitting from the collection. Because really, a picture might be worth a thousand words, but a Photoshopped and highly styled one? Not so much.

Check out our favorites, the best bangs for your buck, and what to avoid from the collection after the jump.

The Good

White embroidered fabric dress with cutout back detailing, $39.99
Now this dress was simply adorable. It's much cuter in person than in the photos. We're drawn to the criss-cross back detailing and the back cut-out. The embroidered lace-like fabric is pretty cute, too.

Cami and mini shorts PJ set, palm tree print, $24.99
This set was surprisingly true to size, and the cotton fabric makes this extremely comfy. The lace detailing is a nice touch, and the cut of the tank is very flattering.

Hats! (Men's and Women's, some only available in stores), $19.99
These hats are definitely statement pieces. The attention to detailing (see: the inside of the men's hat) makes for a more luxe feel, but be warned: The men's hats run small, and are one size only.

Men's Miami T-Shirt, $19.99
This men's shirt made us smile. Sure, it's a little cliche, but why not advertise your favorite city while traveling elsewhere? This fits true to size. (And we're pretty sure we'll see quite a few girls buying these, too.)

Menswear, menswear, menswear
Just overall, the menswear was a real standout. The pieces looked very much like the advertisements, for the most part, and, well, all of those pops of color would definitely make Brad Goreski proud.

Target: American for "crap"
Target: American for "crap"

I'm not sure why designers are even stooping so low as to design for Target. Target is absolute crap no matter what "brand" it claims to be. You won't find a single clothing item from Target, made by a famous designer or not, in my closet!
